Psychology would be very helpful for your Chloe-May. Also sociology might be helpful as well as biology. I'd say definitely psychology - you learn about mental health in it.

Hope this helps - inbox me if you want more help :).

 totally agree, i do psychology and we learn a lot about mental health  and many other things that would come in useful, also its a really interesting subject, i really enjoy it. Biology might be helpful i think

My dilemma is that; for the university i really like, the course i have applied to is new there, and for another uni i equally like the course is very much establish, and its evident that i would get the best help i need but the uni is very close to home, where as the uni i mention is a good distance away from home, not too far and not too close either, i don't know what to do, what do you suggest?

I'm doing biology, chemistry, physics and maths and I want to be a vet - but what other options are there if I want work with animals/science? Can you suggest any other courses available to me? Thanks

Flo - It depends if you need to live out at the uni which is further away, you might need to think about the cost of doing so. If that's not a problem then either would be great. I have the same problem as you. Look at the specific topics you learn in each course - is there any difference? Are some more suitable for your needs than other - do you prefer some of the topics on one course more than the other? Maybe look at the teaching if any information is given about it. Also look at the entry grades. If they are different, choose the one which you're more likely to get into and also higher entry grades means a better uni, so you might want to go to the one with better entry grades. 

Just because the course is new doesn't mean it will be taught worse, but you might want to go to the one which has a more established course, because the teachers will know how to teach the material, and they will have a lot of experience. They will also know the best way for your to get good grades.

Hope this helps - if it were me i'd choose the established one :).

Joanne - you could study biology at uni - that way your future would be open to anything that you want to do. Or you could study zoology, and then do research in animals.
